PNG Hunters vs Norths Devils round 16 preview

Despite occupying 10th position on the Intrust Super Cup ladder, the Devils believe they can feature in this year’s semi-finals. A win over the PNG Hunters at Bishop on Sunday afternoon will certainly enhance those claims. Last weekend in Bundaberg, the Devils flew out of the blocks to lead the Central Queensland Capras 36-0 at the break. 
A double from Luke Pollock and further tries from Harry Pondekas, Francis Molo, Billy Brittain, Sean Yortson and Michael Lucas put the Devils in an unassailable position by the sound of the half-time siren. The Capras did a great job to make a game of it in the second half, but the Devils walked away with a vital 40-24 win, a crucial result in the wake of a narrow two-point defeat at the hand of the Ipswich Jets the week before.
 The Hunters were also in the winners’ circle last weekend, downing the desperate Wynnum Manly Seagulls 18-4 in humid conditions in Port Moresby. All eyes will be on how the Hunters perform on the road after three-straight away defeats put a dent in their minor premiership aspirations. Sunday’s match will be streamed live on the QRL website.
